The west coast of Norway offers the lowest wholesale prices for renewable power in Europe. A data center of 10MW and 8000 full load hours would hence have an estimated annual power costs of average ~2 MEUR per year in Greater Bergen, Norway versus close to ~3 MEUR in Sweden. In the UK the comparable cost are 3x the power costs in the Nordic region. Compare your alternative investment country and you will find that Norway is outperforming not only in CO2 emissions, but also in cost.
